Westwood Public Schools Reviews
Westwood High School has supported me and prompted me since freshman year in order to ensure my readiness for college. I feel as though Westwood has provided me with a safe learning community that has offered me many different opportunities to help me succeed in clubs, sports, and academics. Overall, I am pleased with my high school experience.
Westwood High School really felt like a community, not just a school. I personally was not involved in sports or sporting events (apart from filming them for the local TV station), but felt that if I wanted to be, I could easily enter the crowd and not only not be questioned, but welcomed, and I feel this attitude really applies to any part of Westwood High. I would say my few issues with the school lay more with individual faculty members or students, and are personal. Apart from the personal issues, maybe a more inclusive and informative health class would improve the school, but my experience with Westwood High School has been an overwhelmingly positive one.
The Westwood Public Schools do an amazing job of preparing students to enter college. I know of many teachers in the high school who have two master's degrees. It's small enough that the teachers know who most of the students are; yet big enough to make friends in classes, athletics, clubs and activities. If it were up to me, I would start the school day later since studies show teenagers need more sleep and let the younger students start earlier. However, I realize that the need to start high school earlier in the morning has to do with sports. I am fortunate to have graduated from a high school where the teachers are so invested in the students success.
